Each year more than $100 billion face value of life insurance lapses by seniors over the age of 65 – mostly from a lack of knowledge that an unneeded or unaffordable policy may be sold. There are numerous reasons to consider when selling a life policy.
LISA members can help you with every type of insurance policy, including term insurance. However, the majority of policies sold in the secondary market for life insurance are universal life insurance policies.
Policies may be owned individually or through a corporation, foundation, trust, non-profit organization, or business. It is also very important that all beneficiaries understand the process, agree to the sale, and are actively involved in the sales process.
